VFR Second Hand Car Sales

We always check over any used cars before putting them out for sale. The vehicles receive a thorough VFR Motors service to make sure they’re in tip top working order.

We also retest any used car for sale, so any second hand car you buy from VFR motors comes with a 12 month MOT.

On top of that, we give our cars a 3 month warranty. So if anything goes wrong in that time, bring it in to the garage and we will fix it for you.

Second Hand Cars Bought at Trade Auction

When we buy a used car at auction, we use trade only auction sites. These vehicles aren’t available to the general public so you wouldn’t be able to buy them if you’re not in the motor trade.

All used vehicles bought at trade auctions are HPI checked. This guarantees that the vehicle is not stolen and isn’t an insurance write off as a result of being involved in a serious traffic incident. Who wouldn’t want that peace of mind?

Many of the vehicles at these auctions are cars that have been bought through a lease arrangement which has come to an end. Frequently we find cars great ex-lease vehicle from a Motability Scheme lease. These are often short, fixed term leases so we know how long the car has been leased. Motability lease vehicles are also generally quite low mileage and well cared for. Because of this, we like to buy this sort of car.

Buying an ex-lease car means that we can be confident of a good service history. Regular services are usually included as part of a lease agreement so this sort of car is usually very well maintained.

You can also be confident that an ex-lease car isn’t being sold specifically because there is anything wrong with it. The vehicle has simply come to the end of its lease agreement and is likely to still be in good, or great, working order.

Second Hand Dealer Contacts

We frequently source used cars from second hand car dealers. We have trusted contacts at a number of second hand car dealers in Leicester and Leicestershire. If a customer is looking for a particular type of used vehicle, we often get in touch with a dealer to see if they have this make and model in their used car stable.

We also do repairs for our second hand car dealer friends, so we have a good relationship with these businesses. They trust us to do good work, and we trust them to source good cars!

A Customer Has a Second Hand Car For Sale

Sometimes a customer might be upgrading their car and want to sell the old one through the garage. In this case we usually know the vehicle really well having serviced it over many years.

Trade dealers, second hand or new, generally don’t want older second hand cars. Any vehicle over 5 years old will frequently be offered a really low price by a car dealership. We can usually offer a bit more to give our customers a better return on their used vehicle.
